This is the Anniversary card I made for our son and daughter in law.

Background paper is from Scrap Girls-VRA-Dresden Blue Kit. The Image is from Fred She Said, colored with pencils and markers, CS from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think of my card. It helps make my day when I read your comments.
Once I got my thought process going this was an easy card to make. What I used was: cuddlebug dots folder for the green CS, used PSE to get the color for the paper from the middle of the flower, Linda Waltons green acrylic square frame and the image from ccc image challenge.
Hmmmmm looks like my scanner needs to be cleaned. lol
Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think of my card.
This card I used for my April Express Yourself in CCC. I just love these images that I found on the net.
CS and background paper I had in my stash also used one of the punches I have that I don't use very often. I have way to much stuff that I don't use very often (hmmmm me thinks I should start using what I have before buying anything else)
The word for the April Word Challenge in CCC was Happy so this is what I came up with. My Happy Birthday Cuddlebug folder came in handy for this card. Ribbon and CS I had in my stash--not sure where I got the 3D image.
Thank you for stopping by and please let me know what you think of my card.
Happy Friday to all my blog friends out there. I hope everyone is having a fun and crafty day. For this card I used bg paper,cs and saying from my stash-also used the cuddlebug on my cs and a cute digi stamp colored with my pencils.
